Abstract: The world of today is an ultimate connected world, where all types of physical devices and virtual objects can communicate in order to exchange information or provide services. Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the leading areas that make this worldwide connection possible, by integrating and enabling different solutions and communication technologies. Wireless mobile networks are increasing very fast and giving more perspectives in the telecommunication field. Nevertheless, some problems are still facing this development. The most important and mandatory issue, among them, is the security of the network. In this paper, we will introduce some related works about security concept for mobile networks and we present our solution that provides a new dynamic approach to find a variable number of multiple paths according to the neighborhood, the density and to the mobility of nodes in the network. In order to evaluate the impact of our solution on network performances, we implement our algorithm on one of the most known multipath protocols (MP-OLSR).
